Bike The Drive 2013

Why would anyone want to get together with 20,000 of their fellow bicyclists in downtown Chicago?  Bike The Drive baby, yeah!  It’s the one day of the year that Lake Shore Drive is taken over by bicycles for a few short hours.   Kathy and I went for the first time this year and had a blast riding along between the sky scrapers and beautiful Lake Michigan.  We met so many terrific people that we can’t wait to go next year.  I’ve got a lot of video from the ride but here’s a little preview…

I’ll get back with a longer version later.

  1. 19,999 cyclists is a lot to pass, even for you! Can’t wait for the full length video. I only had to pass 5 this weekend on the Brevet I was on.

    • Kevin!!!

      Great to hear from you! And glad you were off on another adventure this weekend! Only five? You must have started near the front and missed all the fun. Our ride was more of a pleasure outing with a few thousand of our closest buddies. I got to show off a few times when people were curious about it’s speed but tried not to shatter everyone’s vision of reality on this, our very first ride. Maybe next time I’ll get there at 5:30 am to do a fast lap with the eager beavers!
